Since we're going old school. Maybe Emanuel Yarborough then I'd be the giant slayer.

Anderson would be dope cuz I wouldn't even know if I got knocked out or not, but I'll know it'll be a highlight reel so in some cases I'd be immortalized albeit at my expense...roflz!

But yah the best chance for any of us would be pre UFC five where nobody knew any BJJ. Remember their conditioning was pretty crappy too.

I feel like if I was given three months to do nothing but train and get my cardio up to nuff, I could beat Kimbo Slice. I'd just throw lots of leg kicks and try not to get punched or taken down. Seriously, that guy's got chicken legs. Especially compared to how big his upper body is. He looks like Johnny Bravo.

With a full training camp, maybe Tito. I'd throw everything I had into one body shot and if he walked through it, I'd then curl up into a ball.

Broken legs heal.

Brain damage? Not so much.

And don't forget the body kicks. A 'Reem shin to the liver would likely make me insta-sh!t my intestines all over the octagon.

Lolz...people don't realize how hard these fighters hit. I seen a 145 light up everyone in our gym. As one trainer said about Overeem...sparring is about survival...lolz!

With that said I'd wear a football helmet, and one of those sumo jump suits for added protection against The Reem.

Lol.

I mentioned i could take Kimbo in a wrestling match IF he weighed 170 pounds. But to actually take the guy in a fight?? with the size he is??
You are crazy right??? Kimbo has trained alot longer then 3 months and one punch from him would send you back in to your mommys arms.

I love how we have all these UFC level fighters in our midst.

Anderson Silva.

I would bribe Seagal to teach me his 'deadly stuff' and aikido toss Silva across the cage followed by a 'big toe' kick to his "broken" ribs that would make him tap to strikes.

Thales Leites. I can punch pretty hard (not saying I'm a good boxer) and I wrestled for 2 years so that'd be about my only chance at winning a UFC fight, win it Anderson Silva style and just kick his legs when he flops on his back. Any guy who is half proficient in striking would wreck every single person on this forum, Kimbo Slice would kill us all. I would not take a fight against Kimbo for all the money in the world, if you aren't 230+ or a professional fighter his punches would at minimum give you brain damage and at worst kill you. Kicking his legs would be stupid, covering your head and kicking his legs would be the worst game plan, he'd punch right through and knock you out.

Well I'm 5' 10" and about 265 right now. Less in a Brock Lesnar kinda way and more in a Roy Nelson kinda way, but that's all besides the point.

I should clarify that when I said "training" I meant almost exclusively leg kicks with just enough striking and TDD to get by, and by "cardio" I meant so I could run away every time I landed a shot. That way I might be able to outpoint him! Leg kick TKO if I'm really lucky. It's all about the gameplan bro! Haha.

No, but in all seriousness I realize what a joke this is. It's just fun to think about.
